Imagine if you woke up tomorrow, and throughout the entire day, you never thought about having a drink.
Maybe the next day, dinner time came; you had a beer, enjoyed it, and had no desire for another.
During the weekend, you got together with a bunch of friends, some of whom hit it pretty hard, while you had three drinks, nicely paced out, and stopped early enough that by the time you went to bed, your buzz was completely gone.
Since you wouldn’t be thinking about drinking, except to feel pride that you had solved that challenge, what WOULD you be thinking about?
Is there some opportunity, or dream, or problem to solve that excites you?
- Improving your relationship or leaving it
- Getting promoted
- Changing jobs
- Quitting the corporate grind and starting a business
- Doing a triathlon
- Losing 20 lbs.
- Building an addition onto your house with your own hands
- Going hunting for elk with a bow and arrow
This isn’t a rhetorical question. Do well to answer it.
